NBA Rumor: DJ Augustin Trade?

14 rumors in this storyline

DJ Augustin an option for Lakers?

The Lakers have inquired about a number of potential veteran backup point guards and one potential target could come onto the trade market in the coming weeks: Orlando guard D.J. Augustin. The Lakers can’t trade a second-round pick until 2023, but the team does have rookie Talen Horton-Tucker, originally drafted by Orlando before he was traded to the Lakers, on hand.

Hey, Joe: Given the fact the Cavs need a backup PG, is Norris Cole still on their radar, even though for now he’s playing in China? Does he have an “NBA escape clause”? — John, Euclid Hey, John: Though it was reported that Cole has an NBA opt-out clause, the Cavs believe Cole is not available until February, after the Chinese season — and could be locked up even longer if his team makes the playoffs. At any rate, it would not appear he is on their radar any longer. All indications are (for now) that they will try and go the trade route to get a backup to Kyrie Irving. Could be around Dec. 15, when free agents signed over the summer can be traded. I’m just throwing a name out there — Dallas’ Deron Williams is on that list. So is Orlando’s D.J. Augustin.
